District Profile: Democrat Lucy McBath Defends Her Seat In Georgia's 6th Against Karen Handel

President Trump and former Vice President Biden are both campaigning in Florida on Thursday. Earlier in the week, Biden was in Georgia, a state that hasn’t gone for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1992.

Democratic Congresswoman Lucy McBath is facing a challenge from Republican Karen Handel. Here & Now‘s Tonya Mosley gets the latest from Susanna Capelouto, senior editor at WABE in Atlanta.
